The Belgian Information Center here today announced that all Jews in Nazi-occupied Belgium, the majority of whom are Polish-born, must surrender all their property and funds to a central Jewish body, to be set up at once, under orders issued by the Nazi occupation authorities.

Simultaneously, Jews in Belgium were ordered to make immediate preparations for deportation to their countries of origin, the report reaching the Belgian Information Center states. The central Jewish organization will be held responsible for the Jewish property, which will be converted into funds to finance the expulsion of the Jews from the country.
